? >> well, we talk about distractions. we have the president telling us that we need some kind of cooling off period. this is a president that had two years with the democratic house and senate. and everyday come they woke up and did not raise taxes. so they really wanted to do this, if they really believe, they want their taxes to go up on earners making more than $250,000 tunnel were we waiting until the last minute? ten days before the tax hike said. it is a mystery that they are saying that this is an emergency one they had to two years they could have done before. gerri: okay, this is what plan b was under john boehner. if you make a million dollars one year you pay a permanent estate tax at 35%, not 50%. that will go into effect january 1. if plan be is a no go, what will plan c look like? by the way, i love your red jacket. >> the problem isn't this. the real problem is the guy who was visiting a obama in the white house just a few minutes ago. mr. harry reid. the senate has not passed a budget more than three years. the senate has not passed anything on the fiscal cliff greathouse
